My youthful mom, Flora Medellin, of Denton County, TX is celebrating her 79th Birthday today. Happy Birthday Momma!
Flora has been an inspiration to her kids (Stace, Sylvia and Toni) and has beaten back that old stereotype that we tend to become “more conservative” as we get older. Mom is an avid supporter of Planned Parenthood, is a supporter of the Denton County Stonewall Democrats, a long-time member of Kingwood Area Democrats, a Jesse Jackson Democrat from 1988, and past supporter of La Raza Unida Party. Is it any wonder why her kids turned out so liberal?
Another Happy Birthday wish goes to our friend, “honorary aunt” and Dem activist Muriel Stubbs. You can find Muriel at the HCDP headquarters on Friday to wish her a belated happy birthday!
Side Note: Mom and Muriel are also supporters of Annise Parker for Mayor. As Flora has stated, “Ya es tiempo que haiga otra mujer de mayora de Houston.” (It’s about time we had another woman as mayor of Houston.)
I agree Momma!
